Okay, I'll give them a call tomorrow, thanks for the responses. Interestingly enough I emailed Hitchcocks and the same part delivered is less than $50 difference. The parts are actually less money but the shipping equals the cost of the parts. I buy a lot of books from the UK (military history) and I can get them cheaper from there than from the US and I'm two miles from the border. Canadian and US shipping has gone out out sight. Nothing to do with RE's...sorry.
The company I work for had a big problem shipping to Canada because the packaging wasn't bilingual. Go figure!
Last time I crossed the border, you'd have thought I was going through checkpoint Charley entering the DDR. No such problems on the Southern border...explain that one!
